Ignore the overly elaborate name for Le Metier de Beauté’s new peel and mask set and understand the basics. It’s a two-part set which includes a salicylic and glycolic peel in a nifty, squeeze brush applicator and a sleek jar of mask formula that peels off when dry. The folks at Le Metier promise this two magic potions diminish the look of fine lines and wrinkles, increase hydration, revive dull-looking skin, and the usual post-peel irritation and redness. I got to sample the treatment on Friday, and lo and behold, they’re not lyin’.
Both steps of the treatment take only a couple minutes each, and I truly walked away with glowing, hydrated, extra soft skin that suggested I just had a facial. It was almost magical. The price, alas, is not. It’s $265. But, with holidays around the corner, it’s perfectly reasonable to push this to the top of your wish list. Eventually, both pieces of the two-part system will be sold separately, but for now, it’s a duo, and after my experience, I wouldn’t recommend it any other way.
The CHEM60 Pro-Peel is applied with a smooth brush. I didn’t tell my administrator, the beautiful Andrea Kearney, an artist for the beauty brand, that I have super sensitive skin. I wanted to see for myself if the peel portion stung at all, and I didn’t want her going easy on me. It didn’t. There wasn’t even a warming or tingling sensation.
The GLOW10ai Mask, which is applied in a thin layer and peeled off when dry, is created to infuse skin with “an unprecedented concentration of antioxidants, vitamins and hydrators.” To me it was cooling and then firming. I don’t know the science behind it, but I can reassure you that whatever it’s “infusing,” my skin was highly moisturized, dewy even, and lasted until the following morning.
I highly, highly recommend getting your hands on this thing. Be it a happy-holidays-to-ME gift or a present request from a loved one. Find it at Neiman Marcus Le Metier de Beauté counters.
